I am taking 200mg progesterone and I have zero - I mean zero, nada, none, zilch, when it comes to symptoms. Can taking progesterone prevent a natural miscarriage from happening? Like say, the fetus stopped growing, but the progesterone is preventing the body from expelling the contents?

I am getting SUPER anxious for my appt on Friday and I am really trying to prepare myself for every scenario. I have been stalking FB waiting for my midwife to get on, but I'm guessing she is on call tonight!


Thanks for any advice/opinions you can offer me!

From what I have read it will not sustain a non viable pregnancy but only helps a pregnancy that is viable.

I have been on it twice and both pregnancies were my sucessful ones.

I hope you only hear good news at your next appointment! Good luck

^ what she said. It will only help you if you have trouble sustaining a viable pregnancy due to short luteal phase or progesterone levels being low. Good luck at your appointment, hang in there! Every pregnancy is different.

sometimes progesterone can mask symptoms. Try not to worry. I've miscarried several times, even on progesterone, and it was always obvious. If there is no bleeding, i'd say you are good to go!

I know it won't sstop a nonviable pregnancy from mc, I just didn't know if the progesterone would prevent the body from expelling the product of conception, causing a silent or missed miscarriage.

that never happened in my case. I always started bleeding before discontinuing the progesterone. RELAX! Enjoy not feeling sick yet!

I hope Friday comes quickly so you can get some reassurance.

I haven't had any symptoms yet, either. It's kind of nice, but it's hard to feel pregnant when you just feel normal.

That's funny... I've never heard that you have more sickness with boys. I didn't have anything with Levi.

Hey Chica!

Sticky baby vibes to you hon!

You know this already, but just reiterating, every pregnancy is different and some never show the 'early signs' of pregnancy. My first, I had nausea for 2 weeks... from weeks 16-18. With my second... nada, no breast tenderness, not even a missed period (for the first 3 months of pregnancy), no nausea.. nothing.. Twins: MAJOR nausea and breast tenderness. My only boy, nothing again... except I expanded rather rapidly.

I hope Friday comes really soon for you!

... and, might I add, I will be the FIRST to remind you how much you WANTED to 'feel' pregnant, i.e. when you are
  • praying to the porcelain god
  • grasping your breasts in pain after your little one bumps into them for the umpteenth time
  • depressed your last pair of regular pants don't fit
  • depressed your last pair of MATERNITY pants don't fit

I have no experience with the medication. I hope everything is fine though! I did want to chime in because with my first pregnancy I had almost no symptoms. The only reason I thought to test was because my period had not shown. I never got morning sickness, didn't have sore breasts until late in the first tri. Wasn't fatigued until late first tri. I really just didn't feel any different at all. I have a healthy little boy to show for that pregnancy. Hopefully your little one is just trying your patience

I had morning sickness with BE (DS1) up until week 18...This time, I've had almost nothing! So, not sure yet if that's because of gender or just coincidental, but we'll find out soon!

(((hugs))) PAL is so tough! hang in there! Hoping and praying it's all good with you!

oh - and I have had a silent m/c it took 3 weeks for my body to figure out it was no go. And really my symptoms didn't disappear or anything. It took until I actually miscarried for it all to go away.
And with my successful pregnancy - I'd feel sick one day and then fine the next. My boobs would kill for a while- and then nothing. SO try not to freak out - I know - easier said than done!
